The Master of Science (MSc) International Business degree collaboration between Seminole State College of Florida and Robert Gordon University (RGU) concluded its annual program with accolades and honors for the graduating class of nine students.
The program, based in Aberdeen, Scotland, was taught by faculty from and awarded by RGU at Seminole State’s Heathrow Campus. The degree is recognized worldwide and is the same as that delivered to students at RGU’s Scottish campus.
The Seminole State cohort of MSc International Business program graduates traveled to Aberdeen, Scotland, on Dec. 5 to attend commencement and celebration ceremonies.
Graduates of the program earned an official RGU degree, which is intended to denote proficiency in global business practices that can lead to careers in either the United States or Europe. Two students graduated with distinction and six students graduated with merit.
Of note, Joven Carandang (J.C.), a professor in the Adult High School at Seminole State, graduated with distinction, as well as the prestigious Head of School award for straight A’s during his studies. Carandang also serves as an internal stakeholder on the 2017-18 President Search Committee bringing valuable global perspective as a student and as a professor to assist the Board of Trustees (BOT) in seeking qualified candidates for the office of the president.
Additionally, Seminole State Bachelor of Science in Business and Information Management (B.S.B.I.M.) alumni, Karen Abdelmaseih and Donald Antoine, graduated with an MSc in International Business with merit.
The program provided students with an up-to-date knowledge of international business management, including key theories and concepts and also the ability to apply a significant range of professional skills, practices and techniques in international business management.
“Our mission is to prepare the innovative leaders of the future with the capacity to anticipate and manage change in international business and the professional environment. We strive to achieve this through teaching and research carried out in an international context and to the highest academic standards,” says Kirsteen Close, senior lecturer and program manager, Department of Management, Aberdeen Business School.
“We are very proud of our College students who not only achieved their master’s degree with honors, they did so in a third of the time usually taken to complete a master’s degree on a part-time basis,” notes Hugh Moore, dean of the Center for Business, Legal Studies and Entrepreneurship at Seminole State.
